WoodN Industries covers the façade of the Texas Hearing Institute
The only one of its kind in all of Texas, the Texas Hearing Institute is a resource for pediatric hearing loss, which also offers audiology and speech therapy services. And, for the facades of its new headquarters, they relied on the aesthetics of WoodN Industries.
Since 1947, the Texas Hearing Institute has been the most comprehensive pediatric hearing loss organization in Texas. It is the only facility in the “Lone Star State” that combines health services, spoken language education activities for children with hearing loss and support services for parents and guardians. Most importantly, every young person up to the age of 21 is welcomed at the Texas Hearing Institute, regardless of their family’s ability to pay for treatment. This is one of the reasons why the institute staff expects the number of its guests will double in the next 5 years.
The new Texas Hearing Institute headquarters was inaugurated in 2020 in Houston. Welcoming patients from over 44 counties on a daily basis, the building was conceived by Inventure Design studio on a total area of over 3,800 sqm. The architectural language of the interiors gives life to an elegant natural atmosphere: in fact, there is no lack of large windows, ample spaces, furnishing elements and typical games reminiscent of forest fauna and flora.
In order to give the façade a modern, bright and welcoming style (following the style of the institute), the designers chose the unique features of WoodN Industries Q20410 wall cladding in the colors Sahara and Myanmar, featuring a brushed finish.
WoodN Industries wall cladding is made of a composite material, 100% recyclable within our production cycle, and composed of select FSC-certified swarf.
In addition to a perfect aesthetic result, WoodN Industries wall cladding can count on an unbeatable set of characteristics: resistance to fire, parasites, adverse weather conditions and dimensional stability even in the event of hurricanes. In short, our outdoor cladding is the best protection for those who in turn protect those most in need.
